Last Leaf Productions presents The Musicians of Bremen

Children's Theatre
Three animals—a cat, a donkey, and a rooster—have been told they are useless and are sent out into the world, become friends and bond over their common love of music. Just when they have found a new place to call home, a mean burglar kicks them out of their house. The friends work together and use their animal and musical skills to frighten the burglar out of their home and chase him away.
